Tradin’ at the Database: Old and New
Back in the beginning of January, when I was in the midst of my new year trading frenzy (still looking to move some cards, of course!) I put together a quick trade with fellow TCDB member rodine. He happily let me unload a stack of over a hundred cards upon his collection in return for a dozen ‘Stros. Here’s a few of the highlights.
Most of the rest of the cards were early Fleer issues, but these were the other two standouts. For all his firepower, Billy Wagner was one of the nicest guys on those 90’s Astros teams. I have very fond memories of hanging out by the bullpen before games and chatting with him as the team warmed up. Some day I’ll have to show off the many autographs he signed for me during those days. I love finding the obscure minor league cards from the early 90s, so this Classic 5 Sport was right up my alley.
Speaking of multi-sport sets, that Craig Biggio comes from the 02-03 UD SuperStars release, a bizarre four sport release that I’d never heard of – most likely because I wasn’t buying cards at the time.
Thanks again for the cards rodine!
